New Hampshire whitewater, Wonalancet

Carroll county, Route 113A to Tamworth section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III     4.25 miles
  This stretch of Wonalancet is 4.25 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class III section. The starting location is a short drive from Laconia, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. The natural beauty of Carroll County and the cool fresh water will make you feel great. Great exercise and just being out on the river for a while will have you coming back for more.
    The river winds through the White Mountains and you get great scenery. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large number of good rivers. Not
too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. This river system has a few good paddling stretches and the Route 113A to Tamworth section is one of them. The average New Hampshire whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states,  
so if you're not from around here don't forget that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. On this section you do get some distance, it's good length for a morning trip.

Briefly about the general area:
Going for a hike along the Chocorua Brook Trail will let you absorb the natural beauty of this neighborhood. Nearby The Chinock is a delightful place to go if you're at Wonalancet; places like White Lake State Park are good to check out. This is such a wonderful river. A glorious beach right next door to Wonalancet is Center Harbor Town Beach, and while you're here you can take a hike along the Bickford Trail.
